Welcome to the blog for It's Meow or Never Animal Rescue, a 501(c)(3), non-profit, no-kill animal rescue organization. We rescue cats and dogs and after having them seen by the vet, we adopt them to loving, forever homes. Please come back often as we will try and update this site every day.

Please contact us if you need adoption assistance with an animal - if you provide a photo of the animal, we can list it on national databases to help find it a suitable home.

Please*do not* ever give your animal away for free ... learn why.

Kira needs a new home now.

Kira is a sweet, loving, and communicative kitty. She is a Calico, and appears to have been abandoned since she's very trusting now of people and not at all skiddish like she used to be. She's always purring, always down for a petting. She's box trained, and doesn't scratch up anything in the house (except for her favorite chair, but that's because we haven't gotten her a scratcher). She is very mellow and knows her new name now. She's as obedient as cats go, and very, very gentle. Adoption fee waived. Her child's name is Sammie.

Sammie needs you!

Sammie was born feral and we've done a lot to make sure she's adoptable. She is still very shy but very gentle, like her mama, Kira. Because she has spent most of her young life running away from people, her first instinct is to hide from you, but once she gets comfortable, she is very sweet, and will let you pet her and even occasionally purr. She is for someone who is willing to give her her independence and space (for the time being). She is playful, curious, and about 8-12 weeks old. She loves to sleep and lie around on her fuzzy blanket and plays with our dog's little tennis ball. She is ADORABLE and soft with medium length hair. She is healthy, playful, and is box trained. Adoption fee waived.

Halloween Safety

Halloween is right around the corner and with it comes tales of black cats, costumes and candy seekers. It also represents a potentially dangerous time for your pets.

Noise and Strangers

The stress of excited children ringing the doorbell and the strange looking costumes they're wearing may frighten your pet. This can cause aggressive behavior in even the most calm animals so it's a good idea to keep your pets in a quiet area of your home until the excitement is over.

Pet Costumes

If a pet wears a costume, make sure it is not constricting, causing your pet to trip, or blocking its vision. Do not force a pet to wear a costume if it demonstrates discomfort.

Candy & Chocolate

Candy, especially chocolate, is toxic for animals and can cause vomiting, restlessness, heart disturbances, and even death. Ask kids not to share candy with pets and make sure that Halloween candy is put safely out of reach.

Cruel Intentions

Don't leave pets outside on Halloween. Many animals disappear as pranksters and those with darker intentions tease, abduct, torture, or even kill pets.

Be especially watchful of black cats, which are frequent targets of cruel activities on Halloween. Try to keep black cats inside for the week of Halloween. Many animal shelters make black cats unavailable for adoption the week before Halloween because of black cat abuse.

Someone is responsible!

Someone said to me the other day "I am a man, if I had to go and fight overseas I would". Not to minimize fighting overseas, because that's really rough, but I think of all the pets in animal control and high kill shelters. They sit there day after day, waiting for their next adventure, some know what is ahead of them, certain death. They are truly heroes. Some are killed before they reach one year of age. Before you take your pet that has trusted and loved you, to a high kill shelter, reach out to a rescue or Craiglist, the classifieds in the newspaper, etc.. Ask them for help. Don't take no for an answer. I post cats and dogs on our websites and I have a list of people wanting to adopt certain dogs or cats. Ask rescues to do the same if they don't already. For EVERY DEATH of an animal, there is SOMEONE responsible for that death.

We can win $50,000

It's Meow or Never Animal Rescue & Sanctuary is in America's Giving Challenge—Let's win $50,000!

Hi everyone,

Our cause just entered in America's Giving Challenge, which gives us a chance to win $50,000!

Please donate today: http://www.causes.com/donations/select_donation_method?cause_id=134608

To win, between now and November 7th we have to get the most donations to our cause (every person can donate once per day and have it count as a unique donation). We can also win daily awards of $1,000 and $500 if we can get the most people to donate in any 24-hour period. The great thing about this Challenge is that it doesn't matter how much you give, but instead how much you do to encourage friends and family to get involved in our cause. We all need to come together and start promoting the cause if we want to win.

Each of us has tons of friends on Facebook who we can ask to donate to our cause. But let's think big too—can you put our cause in your email signature, can you throw a party and get people to donate through the cause when they enter, can you organize other people to go out and fundraise from all of their friends? As you reach out to your friends be sure to tell them why this cause matters to you. The possibilities are endless so let's talk about what we can do to win on the Wall of the cause or by replying to this bulletin.

I think we can do it! But it's going to take all of us. Check out the Giving Challenge ( www.causes.com ), then visit our cause to see how we're doing so far and get involved.

Donate right now by going to http://www.causes.com/donations/select_donation_method?cause_id=134608

Let's win $50,000 for our animals!

This little furbaby is up for adoption too

This baby just started meowing in our yard and walked up to me. It's about 5 weeks old and I think it's mother is a black cat that was meowing and looking for something in the bushes. I wish she would come back and claim her baby. But in the meantime, this baby is so cute and adorable. How about a name? Anyone?
